The lantern clock, the earliest practical English domestic timekeeper, remained the prized possession of the nobility and rich merchant classes until is was superseded by the pendulum clock in the early 1660s. This definitive study covers the history, mechanism, restoration and conservation of the lantern clock. It describes how English clockmaking was structured, as a well organised and integrated industry employing specialist craftsmen, long before the pendulum arrived. 8 color illustrations, 850 black and white illustrations.
